Hi all.  Airtable is refusing to allow me to create any buttons anywhere in tables (i.e. data section of Airtable), only in interfaces.

When I try to create a button field in a table, I always get the same error message: "

Sorry, there was a problem creating this field. The options are not valid."
 
It doesn't matter which browser, which device, mobile app - Airtable will not allow me to create any button fields. 
 
You can see a short video of the error in action: https://d.pr/i/ImBrOD
 
Any insight gratefully appreciated, as I really want to start making some buttons to trigger various actions like sending emails or text messages.

You have to type a valid formula. If you want a URL, it has to be in quotes. 

Yes, sorry, just made this quickly. Yes, I've tried with quotes for the URL but I still get the same message. 

You also need to fill in the label.
